The Église du-Béguinage (Beguinage Church), dedicated to St. John the Baptist, is an elegant Flemish Baroque church in Brussels.
The church originally served as the center for the béguines (lay sisters) who lived in houses clustered around it. The design is attributed to the architect L. Fayd'herbe.
Today, several streets converge on the small, serene, circular square, which is surrounded by buildings that help create a harmonious architectural whole.
The facade is considered one of the most beautiful in Belgium, and the interior has preserved its Gothic elements, with soaring vaults.
